us? >> sure, zoraida. i think we'll expect the horse race all the way up to november to stay this close. this is going to be one of those real, real tight presidential elections p. but, of course, there are certain bullet points that we focus on when we're looking at these numbers. let's look at this number on the economy. the economy, issue number one in this election. what most voters will likely vote on come november. mitt romney has a six-point advantage over president obama right now when asked who has a better idea to improve the economy. very good news for the romney campaign up in boston when they see that number. however, out in chicago, you can see that the obama campaign can take solace in this number on likability. a 20-point gap, zoraida. president obama, 60% of americans like president obama while only 47% like romney. now, the reason why that's important for president obama and how you all tie it together regarding the economy, president obama has been making the argument that he needs another four years to turn around the economy and that he was handed a very
'm just guessing. he will always soar to great heights here on the riduculist. that's it for us.

, that uses a clip from a speech where he said, if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own. his campaign reinforced his defense in a new web video. >> romney's not telling the truth about what the president said, and is taking the president's words out of context. >> i want to bring in "washington post" opinion writer and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart and the atlantic's national political reporter, molly ball. good morning to both of you. and jonathan, you've heard this message before from the president. but perhaps this one time it wasn't expressed in the best way. what do you think here? is this something that the obama campaign will need to worry about going forward? >> well, clearly they're concerned about it, at least, because the president addressed it in his event yesterday. so, you know, it's one of those things that was maybe inartfully said, but, you know, fundamentally, it was true. and i believe it's the obama campaign that has put out a commercial or at least i've seen the clips, of mitt romney saying virtually the exact same thing to, i believe it was to
't need a special council. we're going to have a couple of u.s. attorneys, one from d.c. and one from maryland, they're going to investigate which some say is political. clearly they work for the attorney general that works for the president. anyway, we'll play you -- we'll give you both the quotation. here first is senator feinstein on monday essentially taking aim at the white house for spilling the political beans, the secret beans. >> i think the white house has to understand that some of this is coming from its ranks. i don't know specifically where. but they're, i think, they have to begin to understand that and do something about it. >> and then up next, she again another statement just yesterday and we have this one for you, too. i stated that i did not believe the president leaked classified information. i shouldn't have speculated beyond that because of the fact of the matter is i don't know the source of the leaks. but, you know, this really brings up the issue of transparency as well which is something that the obama administration has promised from day one and if you'll
care. >> i care. >> legitimate baseball fans care, but it certainly is not as big a deal as it used to be because of interleague play. we see different players from different teams in both leagues all during the year. you can get any game you want on your baseball package on cable. doesn't have the same allure that it used to, certainly. >> yeah. mika. >> yeah. >> the battle over the bush tax cuts. >> here we go again. >> here we go. >> now it's -- because we were talking yesterday on the set in new york about the limit, the $250,000 limit. that could come back. it's growing over how much of the bush-era tax cuts to extend just for the middle class, or, perhaps, for the wealthiest americans as well. both candidates invoked the 42nd president bill clinton to frame their strategies yesterday. take a listen. >> i mean, the very idea of raising taxes on small business and job creators at the very time we need more jobs, is the sort of thing only an extreme liberal could come up with. this is the sort of thing that used to be in the democratic party in the times past. bill clinton called
to be part of the olympics in any way you can be part of it. >> when is the event and for those of us that don't follow the sport is there rounds of competition, just one chance, what happens? >> i have to tell you, this is ann's sport. i'm not sure which day the sport goes on. she will get to see it. i will not be watching the event. i hope her horse does well. >> good morning. it's thursday, july 26th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle, hello, mike. i'm not going to say anything. don't you worry. you look quite fine today. >> thank you. >> msnbc political analyst and former chairman of the republican national committee, michael steele is with us. and msnbc political analyst and visiting professor at nyu, former democratic congressman harold ford jr. and, of course, willie geist in london for the olympics. >> how is your horse doing? >> he doesn't know the name of the horse, the event the horse is going in, and if there's actually a name of the event that has sort of a french flair to it he's not going to say it. >> dressage. >> could he
they'll both be wishing the u.s. olympic teams well. a little awkward, perhaps? >> i think jonathan is right, this is not the place for politics when you're attending the olympic ceremonies and you're on foreign soil. romney, of course, will be getting a lot of attention for his role in the olympics in 2002, which is generally a positive story for him. i think he'll be evoking a lot of those memories as he attends the olympics in london. i don't think michelle obama is going to take the occasion to beat him up for any of his other foreign policy or for his record on the olympics. i think this is going to be a moment of comity. and let's not forget that there's another reason for this trip for romney. he's going to be collecting a lot of checks as well. it's a big fund-raising trip for him as well overseas. >> that's right. some fund-raising going on there. thank you very much, molly ball and jonathan capehart, as always. >>> two survivors of the aurora movie theater shooting have been released from the hospital in colorado today, but there are still about 12 people in the hospital w
